    Here is Collins plan for health care:

    ""All of us should go out across this country and hold a series of public hearings and get the very best ideas that we can on reforming our health care system," she said. "And we should consider everything, every idea that is out there. And then we should come back to Washington and spend two months on the Senate floor doing nothing but health care legislation. ... We should really make it a priority - two or three months of debating health care policy on the Senate floor."" -- 27 Feb 2008

    I wrote about it here.

      I understand both her statements and your anger at the situation. She sounds like a much more reasonable Republican than many I have dealt with though. Her apparent focus and background are far from the health care crisis it appears. I don't mean to imply she should be forgiven for that, just that I understand it. As a representative of the people of Maine it is her responsibility to protect them, their rights, and focus on what they deem important today and in the future. It seem Collins failed in this regard and that is a reason to call for her to be replaced.

      But on the other hand, I understand why people still vote for her. They see someone that understands and has a head on their shoulders. Someone that isn't overly political like many other Republicans out there. They could easily do worse. It's not a perfect reason, but they might feel secure with what they have now and less sure about what they have to choose from.

      On my side of the border, in NH, I have no doubts that we are going to take down Sunnunu. The guy is Bush Lite and doesn't listen to NH citizens. That is a formula for failure in the coming election. Holding Collins up and comparing her to Sunnunu makes her look like the perfect candidate. It all depends.

      Good Luck and I hope this goes well for all of us in November.
